    1. What is personal information?

    “Personal information” refers to the meaning outlined in the Privacy Act and means information or an opinion that could be used to identify you. We also have professional and ethical obligations to protect your privacy and keep your personal information confidential.

    • business or employer details;
    • how you have heard about us;
    • your feedback about our events and promotions.

    • to provide you with the information, resources or merchandise you have requested;
    • to involve you in programs, campaigns, research, activities or other initiatives undertaken by beyondblue;

    • to update our records and keep your contact details up to date;
    • for research, advice and information, including for benchmarking purposes;
    • to send you emails about our events or activities if you have agreed to receive our emails (you will be provided with an opportunity in each email to decline to receive any further emails from us by unsubscribing);

    We take reasonable steps to ensure that the personal information we collect from you is accurate, up-to-date and complete. These steps include:

    • maintaining and updating your personal information when you attend the practice; and
    • amending information when you let us know that any of your information has changed.



    6. How do we protect and store your information?

    We take reasonable steps to ensure the security of all information we collect, including that the information is protected from misuse and loss, and from unauthorised access, modification or disclosure. For example, your personal information is maintained in a secure environment, which can be accessed only by authorised personnel. However, no data transmission over the internet or information stored on servers accessible through the internet can be guaranteed to be fully secure. We also take reasonable steps to destroy or de-identify your personal information once we no longer need it. After seven years (or in the case of a person under 18, until the person turns 25) we may securely destroy or de-identify your records in accordance with Australian laws.

If we refuse to give you access to, or correct, your personal information, we will notify you in writing setting out the reasons.



    8. Complaints about your privacy

    If you believe we have breached your privacy or you have a complaint about how we have handled your personal information, please contact us in writing. We will respond within a reasonable period (usually within 30 days).
